DITCH THE DIET

January. The month after the media implies that it’s perfectly okay to stuff our faces with anything and everything and  bombards us with dieting and weight loss. It’s ridiculous and quite frankly I’m fed up with it. So what if we end up putting on a few extra pounds over Christmas? Why is there this ‘requirement’ to then shred those extra few pounds in such excessive manners? Well, guess what. YOU DON’T!

THE CHRISTMAS BALANCE

With only a few more days to go until the big day, no doubt you’ll have already dived into the mince pies and boxes of Quality Street. As much as I am all about eating whatever you want – especially at Christmastime – I’m also all about balance and even though that balance may go a bit skew-whiff during December, I do try my best to keep some healthy snacks on hand. Here are just a few healthy festive treats that you should try over the next week or so to let your body know that you’re not COMPLETELY neglecting proper nutrition (unfortunately the fruit in a mince pie does not count as one of your 5-a-day).

CHRISTMAS PUD NAKD. BAR

Healthy brands that put a Christmas twist on their products please me immensley. This Christmas Pud nakd. bar is one of my favourite flavours. Made with nothing but dates, cashews, raisins & a hint of natural flavouring, this raw bar has a true Christmassy taste while also counting as one of your 5-a-day. pudding-de-noel-z

MY VITAMINS BLACK FRIDAY BOX

My family have always done well with competitions. Some people claim that we’re ‘lucky.’ To that I say no, we just enter a lot of competitions. A LOT. If you enter them multiple times a week then you’re bound to win something eventually. This year I have mainly won snacks. My latest competition success was the Black Friday My Vitamins box. As the name suggests, this was a snack box that was on sale over the Black Friday weekend meaning unfortunatley it’s no longer available. However, you can order a similar box from their site HERE.

VEGFEST HAUL

It’s no secret that I love food, so it may come as a bit of a surprise to you when I say that before last weekend I had never been to a food festival before. When I first heard of Vegfest a few months ago I was eager to go and so dragged my boyfriend along with me on the Saturday of the weekend event.

Vegfest is a vegan festival where you can discover delicious vegan food, take full advantage of the free samples and get your hands on vegan friendly clothing. I’ve made it clear a number of times that I am not actually vegan, but most of my diet is actually vegan/vegetarian. I thought I would share with you the tasty treats that I bought because I definitely spent way too much money.
